Question about Lenovo 90W Ultraslim ACDC Combo Adapter USCanada AC Adapter

1 Answer

I have the ultraslim combo ac/dc charger. On the plane, using a standard plug through the power brick, there was no power to the laptop. I tried several different seats with the same result, while other passengers had no problem. The plane did not have a special DC (cigarette lighter type) outlet, just a standard plug. Shouldn't this work? Thanks

The plane may have been running 400 Hz. power through the outlet, and your charger's input filter was blocking it so you didn't have enough voltage getting through. The other passengers probably did not have as much inductance (high-frequency filtering) in their stuff.

Do I have a negative battery system or positive battery system?


If you have a 12volt standard electrical system in your vehicle.
It is both positive and negative. The travel inverter converts this 12 volt DC current into 110v 60hz AC current so you can plug in your electronics that require standard household current to charge/operate.
There is a built in USB port if you device will accept this for 12 volt power. It also has the power oultet with ground for 110v 6hz power.
Link below has a good picture and description. Hope this helps!

What is power brick cord?


An AC adapter, sometimes called a power brick, is a little box that takes the Alternating Current (AC) line voltage from your house receptacle and converts it into a Direct Current (DC) voltage that is used by your electonic device (computer, hard drive, etc.). This power brick sometimes has a separate power cord that is removable from the brick. This cord usually connects to your house receptacle, and sometimes it is a standard cord with standard connectors on each end.

Can i use this lap top with plug in and not a battery?? where is the plug in?


I BELIEVE so. Some laptops require the Battery to at least be in the laptop, whether they are good, or not.
Others will allow the laptop to run off of the AC adapter (Charger), with the Battery not installed.

Gateway Support > Gateway MD26 series of Notebook PC's > Main Support page,

http://support.gateway.com/us/en/product/default.aspx?tab=1&modelId=2364


Click on the - Support Documents - tab.
(Drivers / Applications / BIOS / Patches / Support Documents / etc)

Click on - Product Views - in the list.
Click on - Left View
Power connector

This is where the AC adapter (Charger) plugs in.

Examples, (Note US and Europe have different power plug ends),

http://www.batterytech.com/products.aspx?category=ac_adapter&brand=gateway&model=MD2614U&pid=AC-1990111

[The laptop uses DC electricity. Just like the Battery it has, and flashlight batteries. DC Voltage.
The AC adapter (Charger) converts your household, or business, electricity from AC to DC.
(19 Volts DC. In comparison two D cell flashlight batteries store 3 Volts DC ]

The wattage is to different, the wattage for the adapter is 90watts, and the charge for the advent is only 65w.

It could be either one Sarah.

The AC adapter's (Charger) cable, or the DC Power Jack where the AC adapter plugs into the laptop.

This is an example of the DC Power Jack not installed,

http://www.laptopjacks.com/view_part/Acer-Aspire-ONE-AOA150-ZG5-DC-Power-Jack-AC351816.html

(You can click on the three views of the jack to enlarge)

1) Check the DC Power Jack to see if it's in good repair.

Battery removed use a small flat tipped screwdriver, and Gently see if you can move the Center Pin around in the jack.
See if the Center Pin will move side to side a small amount. There is supposed to be No perceptible movement.

Referring back to the closeup photos of the DC Power Jack, the flat blade-like prongs are upside down, in relation to how the jack sits on the motherboard.

The flat prongs go down through the motherboard, and are soldered to the motherboard.
If the center pin of the jack is stationary, but the jack as a unit moves around, one or more solder joints, (Connections) for the flat prongs may be cracked.

The repair consists of completely disassembling the laptop, removing the broken DC Power Jack, and installing a new one.

After you click on the file name (One) it may take up to 30 seconds before you see the first page.
It may also take additional time for the file to fully download.

(Took 12 seconds just now for full download)

No perceptible movement of the DC Power Jack? Suspect the cable of the AC adapter right near it's plug. (Plug that plugs into the DC Power Jack)

There is no power to the monitor,it is not coming on when i start up computer


If the AC plugs directly into the monitor, try reseating the power cable or replacing. If the monitor uses a power supply (ac adapter brick) check that the power cable is fully inserted in the brick and the dc connector is fully plugged into the monitor. Also check the dc connector for bent or broken pins.

My laptop stop charging.


Batteries get old and wear out. Be use AC outlet is working. Check for power light on AC/DC charger box between laptop and AC.

It is common for Laptop charging/power connectors to get worn and/or loose(intermittent). Try to get charging light on PC by wiggling power connection to PC.

If not, if you have a VoltOhmMeter(VOM). check for 5V on barrel power connector on the charger side, that plugs into PC, Outside conductor is GND and Inner connector is (+5V). VOMs are cheap at RadioShack or AutoParts stores and are a handy tool to have around the house. Book shows you how to measure. PC is 120V AC on Wall side of PC Power Supply from Wall Outlet, and 5V DC on PC side of Charger.

Charger may be defective. Cheap on Ebay.
